There’s something about changing my color to red that made me want to be bolder in all areas of my life, including my make-up. Summer, fall winter of Spring you can me (almost) always sporting a red lip. It’s an instant mood lifter. One of my favorite looks is wearing a soft eye and a bold red lip. If you’re a redhead, don’t shy away from this bold color, I promise it will look amazing!
Here are some of my favorite colors :
1) Chanel Rouge Allure Ink
2) Hourglass in Lover
3) By Terry Velvet Rouge
4) NYX intense butter gloss in Summer Fruit
I can’t believe the summer is coming to a close. The kids will be back in school in a few weeks and my schedule will be jammed back with activities. That’s why I’m soaking up these last few weeks of warm days and no schedules and enjoying wearing my favorite summer staples. I love wearing dresses in the summer because it requires such little thought. I have a few on rotation that I like to layer with different shoes and light jackets to change up the looks.
This has been my go to dress for going out at night this summer. It’s so easy to change up the shoes to give it a different look. It could just as easily be paired with sneakers and a light jacket for the day. I can’t wait to put a big comfy sweater over it in the fall and wear it as a skirt.
This is another great dress option that transitions easily from day to night. This one has been on repeat for me and in the fall I can see myself wearing it with a long coat and great pair of boots. Photo credit: Megan Weaver
There’s nothing easier in the summer then throwing on a white dress and some white sneakers. It’s fresh, looks put together. This dress from Maje is sold out, but I linked a lot of other good option below.
My favorite way to brighten any outfit is with a colorful pair of shoes. When I found these bad boys I knew I had found a winner because they are both fun and comfortable. The low kitten heel makes them super easy to walk in and the pink color says, ” I”m here to party, at least until 10:00 pm.” You can easily where them during the day or pop them on with some leather pants or a dress to wear at night. This white top was a little splurge but the lace detail make it so special. This is the perfect outfit for somewhere like California because it’s casual but still elevated.
Welcome to our House Tour. People are always very curious about our house, so I decided to dedicate a post to it today. When we moved from our condo downtown we looked all over for the perfect house. After looking and looking we decided to make something fully our own and rehab a place from the 1880s. We teamed up with my favorite designer Summer Thornton to create this colorful, eclectic home for our family.
You can tell that I’m not afraid of color, or animal print. I love living in colorful spaces because it inspires me to be creative and to live out loud. Every room in our house tells a story and I love that about it. One of my favorite things about our house is that we tried to keep the old world feel while still making it modern and updated. Even though we added on quite a bit to the back of the original structure, it feels like it could have been that way forever. I made some minor changes since living here, like changing up the paint color in my closet. Originally I thought black was a great idea, but because of the lack of natural light I decided to go pink. Although in some ways it’s much more difficult to rehab a house then build new, there’s something very rewarding about knowing we preserved a piece of history. It was definitely a labor of love (and hate) and in the end it’s so rewarding to know I live in something that I poured my heart into.
I hope you love it as much as we do!
It’s summer and I’m always running late. Those two things aren’t related, but MVMT has me covered in both cases. Their sunglasses are the perfect accessory for any summer outfit, and with so many styles, the most logical thing is to buy a pair for every day of the week.
And if you think their sunglasses are cute, their watches are just as chic. Though they may not help me get somewhere on time, they give the perfect illusion that I’m time-conscientious, and that has to count for something. The best part is that they are affordable and versatile, which is my favorite kind of fashion. Even better, use code andrealevoff15 to get $15 off!
